The Ball Game


My friend and I went to see the Devil Rays
get shellacked by the Minnesota Twins. An
old fashioned 8-0 drubbing. The Ray's bats
were silent, managing only 3 hits. Plus
they committed 3 errors, including a dropped
ball in a run down, first time I think I've
ever seen that. Johan Santana, the Twins
pitcher, was nothing short of phenomenal.

That was the baseball game. The other game
going on was "Tell me again, why I shouldn't
go out with this girl." After all this time,
after all the discussions we've had, he's
still fixated on this woman.

She's fed him nothing but bullshit. She's
told him her personal life is wierd, wacky
and spinning out of control. She's apparently
an alcoholic. Yet, he's still thinking about
her, even thinking about going out with her.

I mean, it finally got to the point where
I told him "Listen, you just want to do her,
you just want to get laid, she's apparently
willing, so just do it and get it over with.
But remember this, it's going to come with
a price, and you ain't going to like it when
the bill comes due. Oh, and by the way, don't
call me with your sob story about how she's
screwing you after the sex is over."

Now I got an inkling about how mother's feel
when the 5 year old keeps asking "Can, I mom?,
can I?, can I?" until you want to beat 'em
with a frying pan. I was two steps from
losing it. I was ready to strangle him, one
for keeping it up, two for being so damn stupid.
I was hoping a foul ball would bean him in
the noggin, knock some sense into him, or at
least shut him up.

Nothing worse than when a guy is in lust
and opportunity knocks. The little head
is relentless! I did my part as the friend
and gave him good advice. But I got the
sad feeling I'm going to hear more about
this in the future, and ain't going to be
pretty.

Wishing you all judicious decisions!

It's the old... "If I can't/shouldn't/couldn't/ have it, then I want it" thing that some guys do. LOL He'll probably keep on about her until he screws her and then it'll either stop or get worse.

Here's hoping it doesn't get worse!

Sorry the game sucked but did you at least have a beer and
a little fun between the "pining"?

I'm betting on worse. He even told me he
seems to be attracted to the losers and
this one sounds really bad!

Actually, I enjoyed the game. I like
seeing good pitchers and Santana was
damn good, even if he was on the other
team. Seo, for the Rays, did a good job,
but he just wasn't getting help from his
team. 3 errors will usually sink any team
and this was no exception

I didn't drink any beer at the game, which
was a good thing. If I was a little less
inhibited, I probably really would have
strangled him! Or at least called him an
idiot! I did have a couple of vanilla
White Russians when I got home(damn, they're
tasty!) to help me relax and send me off to
never neverland. Besides, I like your beer
best, always ice cold and refreshing, served
with a smile, and the ambience is outstanding!

Apparently, at least according to him, she's a
"major babe". I think it's just a simple,
straightforward case of pure lust. They seem
to have nothing else in common whatsoever.
He knows, on an intellectual level, that any
relationship with this woman is probably going
to be a disaster.

Emotionally, he wants to have sex with her.
I think he just wants one of his buddies to
give a reason why he should take the plunge,
so he can go "Yeah, you're right, I'm gonna
do it!" I figure, he's going to do it anyway,
no matter what. He's mesmerized.

You are so right! He IS going to do what he
wants to do. The problem is that she has so
many issues: alcohol abuse, financial problems,
and emotional problems. He knows these are
going to mean problems for him, at some point.
But, she's sending out the "I'm available
invitation" and he's having a hard time resisting
it. She's apparently not working on any of
her problems, so there's nothing he can do in
that department.

And yeah, I'll listen to his sad tale, if it
comes to that, which I suspect it will. I
might call him an idiot, but we're still buddies
and I'll be there.
